Very little is known about the occurrence of bioprosthetic tricuspid valve stenosis in the Indian population that usually occurs within 8–10 years following tricuspid valve replacement (TVR) with a bioprosthetic valve. Here, we present a case of a 43-year-old woman suffering from chronic rheumatic heart disease who underwent prior two open mitral valvotomies and a TVR, now presented with severe mitral regurgitation and severe bioprosthetic tricuspid valve stenosis.
